This week was busy and eventful. I have a few things to celebrate, actually. 😀

My physical therapy has been going so well that the distance has been lengthened from a half mile to a mile for my stationary bike and the weight has been increased for my leg presses on the body solid from one to two pounds.

I’m continuing to maintain the goals I’ve set for myself since the beginning of the year. That’s a biggie considering we’re almost going into March. Still working on the Blogging 101… Aye! LOL.

My rehab doctor appointment went really well and he discontinued my Butrans prescription and put me on a low dose prescription of Hydrocodone prn, which is good because I’ll only need to take them when the pain is really bad.

He also referred me to Speech Therapy again because we’ve noticed that I’ve been having word finding difficulties again, as well as some other issues. It’s good in the sense that I need it, but it’s bad in the sense that it’s going to be more co-pays that are going to be eating away at my already tight budget. I’m not complaining, though. Somehow, God always manages to help me find a way.

Best of all, I’m still here and blessed with some very special people in my life.

What have you celebrated this week?





About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Oh all of this is such wonderful news! So glad to see you progressing on your physical therapy and your goals! The goals are actually HUGE! Most people give up by now! Go you!!! I’m happy to hear you have a doctor looking out for you. Even though it means more co-pays, it’s also a good thing to get your speech back! You know this! *waves pom poms*

    Hi, I’m stopping by as a new member of the “Celebrate the …” meme. So sorry to read about your health issues, and I hope you’re recovering day-by-day. I’ve had some health issues myself recently. Came down with atrial fibrillation which, if not monitored closely, can lead to a stroke. Anyway, glad to meet you and I hope we’ll connect via the meme at some point.


    • Oh wow, Cathy, I’m sorry to hear that. I’ve cared for and transported many patients with A-fib back when I was in EMS and yes, you need to keep on top of it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It feels good to be back. 🙂 Have a great night. Eva
